Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch hints at a transfer move for another striker

Leeds United manager Jesse Marsch revealed the club are still hopeful of landing a striker before the end of the summer transfer window.

The Whites let a two-goal lead slip against Southampton last weekend as they picked up their fourth point of the new Premier League season. 

Rodrigo bagged a brace to put the Yorkshire side in control, but Saints fought back to rescue a point - their first of the season.

Leeds are currently without Patrick Bamford who is on the sidelines with an abductor injury.

While Marsch made be short of options, he is happy with the transfer business already done.

He said: "I understand that transfers are always a lightning rod and people want to talk about this a lot.

"The transfers have gotten us to where we're at. We made them early. We brought in players that we think fit the way we want to play.

"We are playing quite well and now we're just trying to be prudent with how we make our last decision.

"So a striker has always been in our mind but we're doing it in a way that we think makes sense. We think it's something that we need to continue to evaluate on - what kind of move we make."

Leeds will turn their focus to Chelsea ahead of a much anticipated clash at Elland Road next Sunday.
